We stopped in to grab a quick bite before a movie. Always good, hearty food. We usually have their chowder, they are famous for it, but this trip we opted for the chili cheese fries...a keeper!

I love the veggie breakfast burrito, made to order. My niece likes the omelette with GF bread. The atmosphere is mellow and the service friendly and prompt. Give it a try!

Basically a bakery and coffee shop it is located in a small neighborhood on Monterey Street so there are lots of local folks who are regulars. Always a good sign.

Always make this a stop when in Pismo. Line was HUGE! Out the door and down the street. $18 for a bread bowl with clamps chowder and an order of fish and chips. Ouch! Girl running the register couldn't make change either.
